on everyone's lips. scandal. good morning. i'm melissa harris-perry. on thursday evening we found out some shocking new information about the political drama we've all been following. someone in the administration who was in charge of enforcing the law is now breaking the law. a government agent discovered evidence of voting fraud in the past presidential election and buried the story. and a president we were all led to believe embodied hope, change, and maybe racial progress seems to be doing no actual governing, and now we have to wait all the way until september to find out what happens because, of course, the season finale of abc's drama scandal. not what's going on in washington. that's not to say washington hasn't seen its share of scandal. a president's election campaign whose donations had spying. an armed hostage situation. and a u.s. president who couldn't keep his pants zipped. now those are scandals. but what we're giving wall to wall coverage now, those stories that keep coming up in every press conference and committee hearing. you know them, ben gauz, the ip phone records. t

, will be allowed to survey damage today, one day after governor rick perry toured the area. this weekend, 35 million americans are in the path of potentially dangerous storms. dylan dreyer is tracking the weather for us. >> d >>> today could be the start of a severe weather outbreak. the moisture streaming in off the gulf of mexico. that puts dewpoint in the low to mid 70s, unstable air combines with the energy to the west of the cold front and could spawn some very strong storms as we go through this afternoon and this evening. in orange there from nebraska, right down into oklahoma, that is the area we could see some strong tornadoes, later on this evening. elsewhere in red, we could be dealing with large hail, also some damaging wind gusts, right now, we have some very strong storms, not severe, but strong storms moving through alabama and through georgia, just south of atlanta and up across minneapolis and back into south dakota. we have heavy downpours, frequent cloud to ground lightning and potential for strong, gusty winds. that's not the severe weather we'll see today. back through p

angeles. let's look for some clarity with the brain trust right now. perry bacon j, political et tore and matt welch, editor and chief at the magazine. one of my favorite brain trusts groups. again for folks who don't usually spend saturday afternoons with us. we have a conversation for 25 minutes and at the end of the discussion we crown one of these women or men the biggest brain and they get 30 seconds to go on the news. let's talk a scandal that has not hit the white house just yet. it's already hit the pentagon rooelg from disclosures at sexual assaults in the military. you said in part if something finally changes it will be because the course demanding the military confront its sexual assault has not gone louder than before. >> well there is traditionally a lot of difference from the white house and to congress to military authority. what's being proposed right now is to take dealing with sexual assault response out of the chain of kbhand and put it into the hands of an independent judicial authority. that is a huge culture change for the military which is used to do everything

in washington. i mean, i guess allf us are waiting for that perry mason moment when steve miller's just going to give it up and say listen, you know, joe biden called me, the president called me and asked me to do these things, and everybody goes home and says, look, i knew this was what it was. this is a game that's played in washington. it's sad and good at the same time. everybody is, in fact, touched by the irs. gerri: i am. >> and everybody understands what the irs does to a family, a business or what have you when they get their claws into you. so it's good that they see steve miller denying, not knowing what to do, t president of the united states saying i'm going to fix it. but if he doesn't know about it, he doesn't know what to fix, and then he goes out and plays a round of golf. it's good that they finally see it, unfortunately, it's about three or four months too late. gerri: you mentioned what the irs can do to you, they can garnish your wages, put you in jail, take your assets. they have, ultimately, all power. but what miller said in defense of himself was shocking to me. it wa

breasts and the choices that women face. good morning. i'm melissa harris-perry. it was hard to ignore the three most notable items in the news this week. no, i'm not talking about benghazi, the justice department subpoenas and the irs tea party targeting. i'm talking about anglin owe jolie and her left and right breasts. she and they were everywhere after we woke up to a tuesday morning new york times editorial from jolie about her difficult decision to undergo a prophylactic double mastectomy to reduce her likelihood of developing breast cancer. she knew the odds she was facing after a test revealed she had an 87% risk of developing breast cancer and a 50% risk of getting the ovarian cancer that killed her mother at age 56. jolie's tests came back positive for a mutation on a gene known as brca 1. mutations on these genes like the one found in jolie's tests exponentially increase breast cancer risk. a woman who has inherited the flaw in the genes is about five times more likely to develop breast cancer than a woman without the mutation. it is i terrifying possibility to consider both
